The crisis in the Ogun State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party PDP has taken another dimension as the party on Thursday announced the dismissal of its former governorship aspirant, Ladi Adebutu, and four others.
The Ogun PDP noted that their dismissal from the party was because of the alleged involvement in the manipulation of the delegates’ list used in the conducting of the May 25, 2022 governorship primary election of the party and flagrant disobedience to a court order.
Adebutu’s expulsion comes after the Working Committee of the party, reviewed the report of a five-man disciplinary panel set up to look into the allegations of anti-party, indiscipline, division, and acts capable of bringing the party into disrepute.
The former governorship aspirant, who has been on suspension since October 25, got expelled alongside four others Taiwo Akinlabi, Sunday Solarin, Kayode Adebayo, and Akinloye Bankole.
The chairman of the disciplinary committee, Akintunde Mufutau said in a statement:
“After a thorough review of the allegation leveled against them, the panel found Adebutu and others guilty. Subsequently, they have been recommended for expulsion and same has been communicated to the necessary organs of the party for ratification.”
